Costa Rica: The Peace Lodge

Costa Rica is an amazing destination.  Yes, certain areas have become touristy & I would avoid them during high season.   Yet there are still many hidden gems. On my last trip I visited a few.

 Just 1 hour from San Jose International airport is one in the Peace Lodge.  Located on the grounds of the La Paz Waterfall Nature Park, the Peace Lodge celebrates the Poas Volcano, the rain forest & the creatures that thrive there.

The Peace Lodge was featured on the Travel Channel as a “honeymoon hot spot” but you need not be a newlywed to appreciate its elegant “rustic” type accommodations & amazing natural surroundings.

Hiking to the waters falls, visiting the butterfly gardens, bird watching, searching for the elusive jaguar & just being in awe of nature is what it’s all about.

If my client’s arrive early enough into San Jose, I transfer them to the Peace Lodge versus staying in San Jose’.  Most say that they wished they had stayed longer.

Booking Direct Does NOT Save Money!

PLANNING A DESTINATION WEDDING OR HONEYMOON?

Booking your destination wedding, or honeymoon direct does NOT save you money!!

The best kept secret in the travel industry is that those who book direct are paying for something that they are not receiving: the services of a professional travel agent.

What do I mean by this?  You will pay my commission or service fee because it is always built into the price of your package by the very supplier who is encouraging you to book direct.    Do they discount my commission to you so you save money…absolutely not!  I realize that we live in a society where goods & services are just a click away but consider this. Once you book direct and give your credit card to the call center in Mumbai India you will receive a computer printout and you are now a computer statistic.  In other words you are on your own. Hopefully nothing will go wrong.

Now that we have determined that prices are equal why not trust the travel planners at Time Travels inc. with your destination wedding, honeymoon or anniversary trip.

For one thing I truly care about my clients and put their interests first.

SEE OUR WEDDING, HONEYMOON & ANNIVERSARY TESTIMONIALS

Our travel agents take pride in giving unbiased opinions to our clients. We are not selling off of one website from one travel supplier.  We compare the competition & offer you current options that often save you money. We advise you on the very best product that meets your travels needs.  We can point out the advantages & disadvantages of several travel companies & point out the best destination wedding location for your group.

We take inter consideration your budget for your honey vacation & also find the best bang for that buck.  We provide documentation & advice about ports & sightseeing options and many times have affiliated offices aboard. One of the most important things we do is analyze your travel insurance needs & help you make the correct decision.

Suppose something does go wrong.  Someone gets sick and your need to return home in a hurry.  Your travel agent is your advocate & will help you through it.  When booking direct you have no advocate. When my clients are traveling I know where they are and what they will most likely encounter.  I worry about them until they return.  I doubt that an online booking engine is capable of this emotion toward a travel statistic.
